If you are one of the many families that have moved into a new home recently, you realize the amount of hard work the process entails. This article will outline some quick and easy tips to make your next move run a little more smoothly.

To begin, write everything down. Before you pack, create a simple record keeping system to keep track of all your items. Place a number on every box and list the contents. Try not to put to list down unless it's in a place you deem "packing central". This area is where you will keep labels, pens, box tape, and various other supplies. When listing the items, be specific.

Gather boxes. You will ultimately need quite a few, and you can never have too many extras. Try heading out to a few retail outlets and asking a manager if they have any extra you might be able to take off their hands. If you end up with too many, you can easily give them away or recycle them afterwards. Be sure to obtain a supply of packing tape and unprinted newsprint (regular newspaper can stain items). Bubble wrap is also a wonderful option.

Try designating a color for each room to help you better keep track. Apply a colored sticker to each box near the number, while in the new home adding a duplicate sticker to each door in the house. If you have hired movers or have friends helping out, they will know exactly where each box should be placed.

Keep all like items together. Bulbs with lamps, cords with appliances, etc. Small or loose parts can be attached to the item they belong to with a small piece of tape or envelope. Keep any larger accessories in resealable bags and tape them accordingly.

Fill any luggage you may have with clothing, sheets, towels and anything else you can't find a place for. This helps with storage and makes it easy to navigate where items have been placed.

Try to keep a close eye on your valuables. In cases where a long move is involved, pack these items in a box marked "Misc. Kitchen"and write the contents in your moving log.

Packing ahead can greatly reduce time and stress later on. Once you set a date, being getting the simple things out of the way. For example, if it's winter, pack your summer clothes. Make a travel cosmetic kit and pack the majority of the toiletries. Trash cans can be used as packing devices while you switch to using plastic bags which you can hang on door handles.

At the end of the day, any task you can get out of the way early is one worth doing. Save yourself the added hassle come moving day and enjoy it! After all, moving doesn't have to be a pain if you don't want it to be.
